Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. You should just take your regular dose at 8:55 and it wont have significant effect on treatment. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose since it may cause overdose. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
